Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed at Plaza Singapura.

Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed – May 27, 2017

Went to Plaza Singapura to renew my mobile contract, and walked right into monstrous dinosaurs!

RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed. Dinosaurs come to Plaza Singapura for the June School Holidays!
Dinosaurs has invaded Plaza Singapura!!

Not an actual invasion by Jurassic fiends, of course. It was a joint exhibition by Plaza Singapura and Singapore Science Centre titled Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed. Spread across almost the entire ground floor atrium, the exhibition featured several full-size automated beasties, children rides, and related workshops. What I found most impressive were the massive automations, all of which felt incredibly lifelike. From the looks of it, all were built to scale too.

This one looks a little nasty, you think?
Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed informational panel.
Pretty informative panel. I had NO IDEA there was a dino called a mamechisaurus. I thought the long-necks were all Diplodocuses.
Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed Omeisaurus Panel.
What a strange name. Since it’s Chinese, I wonder whether Omei actually mean Emei. As in, the Wushu mountain.

Personally, I’m not into dinosaurs. They just feel, I don’t know, crude? That said, I don’t actually dislike them, and I did enjoy the Jurassic Park movie franchise. For parents, I think Rawr would be great for entertaining and educating the kiddies. The ones I saw today were all utterly delighted by the bellowing creatures. (The courage!) My guess is that none of them would be complaining later, when made to sit through dinner or grocery shopping.

The stage. Would there be singalongs of “If We Hold On Together?”

Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed Sandpit.
Sandpit! This reminded me of the Darkmoon Faire sandbox area in World of Warcraft. Dig on, kiddies! Collect those fossils and assemble your epic mount!

If you’re interested, Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed is ongoing at Plaza Singapura till Jun 11. There are various workshops and weekend shows. Details about the shows and related promotions can be found at Plaza Singapura’s site.
